The word war between former actress Mystica and internet sensation Diwata continues after the two made a response to each other’s criticism.

It can be recalled that Mystica criticized Diwata for being unsanitary in handling his Paresan business and called out the internet celebrity for ignoring his fans.

As a reply to Diwata, Mystica shared her observation of watching the internet sensation while interacting with his fans.

“Halatang-halata na nandidiri na siya sa mga nagpapa-picture sa kanya,” said Mystica. “Samantalang ‘yung mga namimigay sa kanya, talagang welcome na welcome at igugugol niya ‘yung buong oras niya pero ‘yung mga taong pupunta doon para sila ay pipila para sa kanyang negosyo ay baliwala nalang sila,”

It can be recalled that Diwata became popular due to the ordinary content creators who covered his daily activities every day.

“Mas priority sakin ‘yung tindahan ko kaysa sa humarap sa camera niyo. Every time na pupunta ako diyan [sa restaurant] andiyan nalang kayo [at] gusto niyo nalang na nakaharap nalang ako sa camera niyo,” he added.

According to him, he already received negative comments for becoming strict when it comes to granting interviews and photo-ops, but he told his visitors that they must also understand that he was also managing a business.

Larry Gadon, tinawag na ‘imahinasyon’ ang kahirapan ng mga Pilipino

Tinawag na haka-haka ni Presidential Adviser on Poverty Alleviation Secretary Larry Gadon sa mga Pilipino na nagsasabing sila’y naghihirap base sa kanyang sariling obserbasyon.

Sa isang panayam sa public briefing ng Bagong Pilipinas Ngayon nitong Biyernes, ibinahagi ni Gadon ang pinagkuhanan ng kanyang konklusyon na mula sa kanyang sariling obserbasyon.

Ayon sa kanya ay marami paring mga Pilipino ang nagpupunta sa mga mall na isa umano sa mga senyales na hindi nakakaranas ng matinding kahirapan ang bansa.

Ginawa ring basehan ni Gadon ang traffic na dahilan umano ng pagdami ng sasakyan.

“Pero ang katotohanan, magpunta ka sa mga mall, punong-puno. Pumunta ka kahit sa mga probinsya, yung mga branches ng punong-puno. Ibig sabihin, mataas ang purchasing power ng mga Pilipino,” ayon kay Gadon

“Lumabas ka ng kalsada, napakaraming bagong kotse, napaka-traffic. Anong ibig sabihin niyan? Maraming nakakabili ng kotse, which means maganda ang ekonomiya,” dagdag pa niya.

Taliwas ito sa isinagawang survey ng Philippine Statistics Authority kung saan may mga nagsasabi na nakakaranas sila ng kahirapan sa buhay.

Ayon sa pinakabagong survey ng PSA na inilathala noong 2023 ay mayroong poverty rate ang Pilipinas na 22.4%

Sa datos na ibinahagi ng SWS survey nitong Abril ay sinabi na 46% ng mga Pilipino families ang sinasabing sila’y mahirap.

Sinasabi naman sa hiwalay na survey ng SWS noong 2023 na 12.6% na pamilya sa Pilipinas ang nakakaranas ng ng kagutuman sa Pilipinas.

Inulan naman ng batikos sa social media ang sinabing ito ni Gadon dahil sa tila ay binabalewala niya ang problema na siyang dapat sinosolusyunan ng kanyang opisina na ang trabaho ay iangat sa kahirapan ang mga Pilipino.

Wala pang pahayag ang palasyo tungkol sa sinabi ni Gadon.

“Salve naawa naman ako kay Paolo Contis na para bang nasa aquarium na gusto laging pinapanuod ng tao. Iyon kahit pa nga dapat pribado na niyang buhay talagang gusto parin kalkalin ng mga walang magawa. Tutoong public figure ang artista. Pero sana naman iyon gusto nila na sila na lang ang may alam hayaan na natin,” she said.

She argued that the public must stop interfering with Paolo’s private life and just enjoy his performance as an actor.

“Sana naman iyon na lang muna tignan natin. Kung anuman ang buhay niya sa labas ng kamera, pagbigyan na lang natin siya basta maligaya siya. For the longest time naging sad and lonely si Paolo Contis dahil sa ilang journey niya sa buhay na hindi niya na control. Ngayon meron siyang nadarama na konting happiness hayaan natin siya na enjoy whatever it is. Kawawa naman siya kung pati iyon aagawin pa natin sa kanya,” she stated.

It can be recalled that Paolo refused to answer some questions from the media about his rumored breakup with Yen Santos.

“No comment. As I always say, masyado na kayong may alam sa buhay ko so I’d like to keep my personal life personal,” Paolo told the press.

“Alam ko, napansin niyo rin na balewala na yung mga taong pumila at kumakain sa paresan niya, ang bilis niyang nagbago, papaano pa hahanga ang tao sa kaniya kung ganoon siya, akala mo kung sino na siya na hindi na maabot!” she added.

Mystica, who’s also working in the food industry, told Diwata to address sanitation issues at his establishment.

“Unahin mo ang sanitation at kalinisan ng mga kumakain sa iyo, yun ang dapat inaasikaso mo, hindi ang mangbara ng mga taong ikaw naman talaga ang pinunta, hindi ang pares mo,” she said.

“Hindi niya alam na ito ang magpapabagsak sa kanyang nilalangaw at dugyot na ugali, dugyot na katawan at pagmumukha at dugyot na paresan!” she added.

Establishment in Laguna receives criticism for hiring only atleast college levels for bagger positions

An establishment in Laguna was facing criticism from the netizens for posting a high requirement for a bagger position.

In a Facebook post, Newstar Calamba Laguna shared the available position for their establishment, which included a bagger tasked to pack the groceries being brought by customers.

Applicants must also have at least six months of experience in the retail industry.

They also indicated that people who wanted to become a bagger must have “passion for excellence in providing exceptional customer experience, interpersonal communication, multi-tasking and flexible & able to perform under pressure,”

Netizens criticized the company for being too strict on their requirements for a job with a very simple task.

“Sa ibang bansa tulad dito sa saudi kahit matatanda na basta lokal sa bansa nila at gusto pa mag trabaho tinatanggap parin nila. priority nila mga citizen nila kaya mga amo namin kahit magpa lipat lipat ng trabaho okay lang at isa pa wala silang kontrata magtrabaho sila hanggat gusto nila. kaya sa ibang bansa dami matatandang guard lalo na sa mga school isa pa mas mataas pinapa sahod sa lokal kesa sa mga expat. sa pinas lang tlga ata yung ganyan dami hinahanap. edad, pleasing personality, college level or grad etc tas sahod maliit,” netizen Jethroloyd said.

“Dapat pong ibagay naman po ng tama sa application sa work dahil kahit no read no write po ang applicants pwedi po give also the opportunity to those lack of education,” netizen Nora remarked.

“I used to do intermittent fasting and tried keto diet. Now I’m super healthy and can’t ask for more,” he added.
